The lights are on
As a special treat to Friday the 13th observers, we've decided to air this week's episode of Replay a day early. Join Joe Juba, Tim Turi, Jason Oestreicher, and I as we travel back to the long forgotten NES slasher game, Friday the 13th. Tim makes sure that he shows us the game's "good" ending. Rather than doing a standard Roulette this week, we decided to keep our love of horror alive in two bonus segments.
Super Replay Update: If you're wondering where our Half-Life Super Replay is, we ran into a slight delay due to a magazine deadline. We'll begin recording episodes next Thursday, and will hopefully air them the following week. Keep in mind that these plans are tentative. We're doing everything we can to get them out as quickly as we can. Thanks for your patience!

Oh, boy. I played Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm St. way too much when I was young. I had no idea they were bad or nearly impossible to beat, so I just plugged along for hours and hours. You have to press diagonally down and a direction to duck to dodge Jason (doesn't matter which way), then hit him when he backs up. Once you get the pattern down it's really not that hard when he's in the cabin. In the open and on the water, though, he's ridiculous.
I remember actually "beating" him a couple times, then he comes back the next day with full health. I've read you have to do this three times. Good luck with that.
And in Evil Dead they were laughing at Ash because he broke a chair when he sat down.
you guys should love CABIN IN THE WOODS!!!!
You guys really need to have a SplatterHouse replay, Turbographx 16 style.
Great Replay. Horrorfest was an excellent idea!
"they were having the sex" --- that line made my day
What an unusual idea of a game of a horror film. Great Replay, though!
but seriously, I want to rip out the coding for the music and burn it.
Hey, love the replay this week.
I'm not one to make suggestions, but I think you should do a second segment that would be something like "Replay Revisit", and go just a little bit further into Evil Dead Regeneration. It does start off kinda slow, and it does get a little repetitive for a Super Replay, but once you get Sam as your add on, there is some hilarious stuff that you can do with him and some great witty writing to go along with it. I'd love to see that.
(Coming from someone who has played and beaten the game multiple times)
Horror Fest was great! You guys should do this every Friday the 13th and Halloween.
This game was very difficult! I remember freaking out as a kid whenever Jason showed up...it was sort of like Nemesis from RE3...
Yay Horror Fest! Also, I think you wrote Dan Ryckert instead or Joe in the description, Reiner.
Nice Horrorfest! Also, take your time with the Super Replay. You'll get it to us in due time.
omg! ft13 is awesome!
HOBO WITH A SHOT GUN is incredibly ***
Hey Mr. Reiner dude! Have you ever seen the simpsons version of nightmare on elm street?
Very cool episode. But I still wanna see some Ocarina of Time!
